Developer: Freak Zone Games
Available on: Nintendo Switch (reviewed)
Price: $2.99 USD
In a nutshell: Ghosts n’ Goblins meets Flappy Bird
Serving up equal parts Ghosts n’ Goblins and Flappy Bird, Freak Zone Games’ Knight Terrors is an affordably priced pick-up-and-play arcade game that’s as addictive as it is simplistic. It’s a spooky looking endless runner (and flapper?) that ramps up the challenge and rewards persistence with additional modes and power-ups, and despite incurring a few minor issues it’s definitely deserving of a place on your Nintendo Switch.

The fine folks at Nicalis are bringing the definitive edition of indie darling Cave Story to the Nintendo Switch on June 20th in both physical and digital formats. In a PR e-mail received earlier today, the official price is set at $29.99 for either version. Continue reading “Cave Story+ Gets Physical, Physical. Oh, and a Launch Date.”
Twin-stick roguelike The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is one of the few physically released Nintendo Switch titles currently available at retail, and it’s the one I recommend picking up alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

I desperately wanted to hold off until I found a neon Switch in stock somewhere, but my local GameStop had a few gray models behind the counter today. I’m weak.
They also had one last copy of The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, which comes with all sorts of neat stickers and a retro NES-style instruction booklet. I had a good time with the randomized roguelike on PS4 and look forward to dying repeatedly on the Switch. It’s basically a series of randomized Zelda dungeons, but with lots of poop, crying, and religious themes.
But now… now I can finally play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I may never see the light of day again. Unless, of course, I hate it.
I’d love to mingle with you folks on the ol’ Switch, so if you’d be so kind as to shoot me your friend code here in a comment or as a DM on Twitter @CheapBossAttack, that’d be great!
